    Phenomenal, Thanks Numi! Was really excited for confirmation.

    I'd say @Numistacker has gone way above and beyond for helping us silver forum members. Congratulations Numi, well deserved, and great to see you have success with NGC.

    Possibly because I could be wrong, and it's not mine.

    Thanks, I was going to message you when Numistacker confirms in a video.

    After doing a bit of sleuthing before, there are a few varieties of that coin. The one I sent was, if I remember correctly, a Sepr, some came as Sepr:, Sepr. and Sep: and a Sep with no stops. I'd take a gamble that the change in the census does reflect the coin I submitted. I'm always open to correction though. I'd actually consider giving this one to the museum. I will have some laugh at myself if I'm wrong Feel free to do the same.

    I think my 1689 James II got an AU55. I am pretty much gobsmacked by that. 329 year old coin getting an 'AU' grade is pretty hilarious. In a good way.

    I got _extremely_ lucky and got one of these sets for _a lot_ less than what i should have paid. The first genuine deal I've ever had at an auction. I had been eyeing this up for ages now. United Nations 1995 Silver Proof 36 coin set (with all COA's - this alone is very rare). There were only 1394 of these sets ever made, most of them got broken up from the sets, though some of the coins exist separate (in their own individual presentation cases). Some really notable coins in here, the lowest mintage Irish coin (ever), Moroccan 200 dirhams, Argentine Peso, Norwegian 50 Kroner, Latvia 1 Lat, Uruguay $200, Oman 1 Rial, GB £2 The list goes on. Estimated Value is about 1000 quid, I guess. Maybe more. Has anybody got one of these? I placed a bid, thinking I'd just lose, but if you're not in, you can't win. Imagine my delight when I got the email that i'd won it. (This set is not my one in the picture, but the same deal.)

    I have to say I'm very excited (And hoping these are my coins too lol). Thanks again Numi.

    I'll take a PF71 Rare Date Quintuple Sovereign, please.
  11. Sorry I'm just getting back to you now @mondy41 If you do get the urge to swap/sell them, I'd be very interested.

    Pity. It's a mess up like that that has long lasting effects, especially for those who are buying it on the basis that it's a proof. I wouldn't be able to tell the difference without you pointing that out. It is a masterpiece, though.

    Wow, would this be a problem for NGC to resolve if @PansPurse overpaid for the BU?

    For those of you who are impatient, and those of you that have submitted a coin for grading: There is a way to give a good indication of your coin's grade. Here's how I do it, anyways. So, say you've submitted a coin that isn't overly popular *right now* Just keep an eye on the census - when the number changes in the census, it's highly likely that that is your coin. Have fun
  15. I've got quite a collection of Irish banknotes I'm trying to build. If anyone has any that they're looking to get rid of (or would swap for some silver), let me know!
